When I saw Richard Watson's book Psalm 23 come up for review, I jumped at the chance to review it because it was KJV text. It is very hard to find KJV text books. I'm not disappointed in the least. I was very pleasantly pleased with this book. The illustrations are absolutely awesome. This book is geared to the preschooler. It is a chunky cardboard book. Very durable to those little hands. Your little one is bound to get caught up in the illustrations as you read Psalm 23 to them. It is a perfect fit. This one is going in the church nursery for little ones to look at and teachers to read to them. Would I recommend this book? You bet ya!
